The cityscape of Seoul is an excellent reflection of the people who live there. High-rise apartments and ultra-modern skyscrapers reflect the burgeoning tech-driven economy while palaces, traditional villages and gardens provide sanctuary in the city – and evidence of the immense historicity of Seoul, which is situated in an area that has been continuously settled for over 2000 years. As the epicenter of contemporary South Korean culture Seoul has grown into a position of international significance with regard to fashion trends, music and flavor. This fusion will no doubt exhilarate any who choose to visit – but it can also be bewildering.First impressions matter, especially when you have limited time at your disposal, so allow me to guide through the city which I am privileged to call home.This itinerary for 3 days in Seoul will take you from the halls of ancient palaces to brightly colored streets teeming with Korean BBQ, through breathtaking gardens, over mountains and into shopping districts that will amaze even the most worldly fashionista.
